The Company is not responsible for managing and maintaining the security of your wallet nor for any unauthorized access to or use of your cryptocurrency wallet.

Any and all use of NFTs on social media websites (“Social Media Sites”) and on any websites or in (electronic) media must comply with the RMCC. Removal of responsible drinking messages included in our NFTs is prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to seize, freeze, or otherwise modify the ownership of any NFT in case of non-compliance with this Section 2.
- 3. Payment, Gas Fees, and Taxes
(i) Cryptocurrency Financial Transactions on Platform. Any cryptocurrency payments or financial transactions that you engage in via the Platform will be conducted solely through the Network. We have no control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any payments or transactions. We do not provide refunds for any purchases that you might make on or through the Platform – whether NFTs or anything else. Whether a particular cryptocurrency is accepted as a payment method by the Company is subject to change at any time in the Company’s sole discretion.
(ii) Fiat Currency Financial Transactions on Platform. Any fiat currency payments via credit cards or other means will be directed to our unaffiliated third-party payment processor.

This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that you instigate via the Platform on top of the NFT purchase price. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms, you will be solely responsible to pay any Gas Fee for any transaction that you instigate via the Platform.

To allow us to determine our tax obligations, you agree that we rely on your IP address. You are required to inform us if your IP address does not reflect your province or territory of residence.

Any such discount offer is: (a) not guaranteed and only available while supplies last; (b) non-transferable, not for resale, and not redeemable for cash; (c) valid only for the specific NFT collection featured in the discount offer. The Company reserves the right to withdraw, amend, or cancel a discount offer at any time.

Our standard terms and conditions of sale apply in respect to NFT orders placed using a discount offer.

This may include the opportunity to redeem existing NFTs for exclusive experiences or other NFTs. These offerings are a benefit of purchase, are not guaranteed, and will be subject to the terms and conditions attached to each specific collection and applicable laws.

For the purposes of this Section 4, the following capitalized terms will have the following meanings:
“Art” means any art, design, and drawings (in any form or media, including, without limitation, video or photographs) that may be associated with an NFTs that you Own.

This means that, with the exception described in Sections 2 and 4(ii), you have the right to swap your NFT, sell it, or give it away. Ownership of the NFT is mediated entirely by the Network. Except as otherwise permitted by these Terms in cases where we determine that the NFT has not been rightfully acquired from a legitimate source (including, without limitation, through any of the Category B Prohibited Activities), at no point will we seize, freeze, or otherwise modify the ownership of any NFT.

The Company’s NFTs are only offered for sale to persons who are twenty-one (21) years old or older, or have reached the age of majority in the province or territory of their residence in Canada.

We reserve all rights in and to the Platform Materials that are not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
(v) Further User Ownership Acknowledgements. For the sake of clarity, you understand and agree: (a) that your purchase of a NFT, whether via the Platform or otherwise, does not give you any rights or licenses in or to the Platform Materials (including, without limitation, our copyright in and to the associated Art) other than those expressly contained in Section 4(vi) of these Terms; (b) that you do not have the right to reproduce, distribute, or otherwise commercialize any elements of the Platform Materials (including, without limitation, any Art) without our prior written consent in each case, which consent we may withhold in our sole and absolute discretion; and (c) that you will not apply for, register, or otherwise use or attempt to use any of our trademarks or service marks, or any confusingly similar marks, anywhere in the world without our prior written consent in each case, which consent we may withhold at our sole and absolute discretion.

(vi) User License to Art. Subject to any specific terms and conditions provided by the Company (if any) governing the sale of any individual NFT, and subject to your continued compliance with these Terms and continued ownership of the Purchased NFT, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except in connection with an ownership transfer of the Purchased NFT) license under the Company’s rights in the Art, solely in the jurisdictions where the Company has such rights, to use and display the Art associated with your Purchased NFTs, solely for your own personal, non-commercial use. For the avoidance of doubt, to the extent that you are permitted to sell, swap, donate, give away, transfer, or otherwise dispose of Purchased NFTs, royalties may apply. Please refer to the specific terms and conditions that govern the sale of individual NFTs as offered on the Platform. Your license to the Art will immediately terminate if you convey or otherwise relinquish your Purchased NFT for any reason. For avoidance of doubt, nothing in these Terms grants you the right to use any of the Company’s trademarks. No trademark or other rights based on designation of source or origin are licensed to you.
(vii) Restrictions on Ownership. For the avoidance of doubt, your license to Art under this agreement does not permit you or any third party to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without our (and, as applicable, our licensors’) express prior written consent in each case: (a) modify the Art for your Purchased NFT in any way, including, without limitation, the shapes, designs, drawings, attributes, or color schemes; (b) use the Art for your Purchased NFT to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (c) use the Art for your Purchased NFT in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that do not comply with the RMCC, depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others; (d) use the Art for your Purchased NFT in movies, videos, or any other forms of media, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted in these Terms or solely for your own personal, non-commercial use; (e) sell, distribute for commercial gain (including, without limitation, giving away in the hopes of eventual commercial gain), or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Art for your Purchased NFT; (f) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Art for your Purchased NFT; or (g) otherwise utilize the Art for your Purchased NFT for your or any third party’s commercial benefit.
(viii) Third Party IP. If the Art associated with your Purchased NFT contains Third Party IP, you understand and agree as follows: (a) that you will not have the right to use such Third Party IP in any way except as incorporated in the Art, and subject to the license and restrictions contained herein; (b) that, depending on the nature of the license granted from the owner of the Third Party IP, we may need to (and reserve every right to) pass through additional restrictions on your ability to use the Art; and (c) to the extent that we inform you of such additional restrictions in writing, you will be responsible for complying with all such restrictions from the date that you receive the notice, and that failure to do so will be deemed a breach of the license contained in this Section 4.
(ix) Disassociation of Purchased NFT and Art. You specifically acknowledge and agree that your ownership of the Purchased NFT does not grant you any right, title, or interest in or to the Art except as expressly set forth herein, and that the Company may remove or terminate access to the Art that is made accessible by the Purchased NFT if the Company determines in good faith that the Art may be defamatory, violate applicable law, or infringe the intellectual property or other rights of a third party.
(x) Other Terms of License. The license granted in Section 4(vi) above applies only to the extent that you continue to Own the applicable Purchased NFT. If at any time you sell, swap, donate, give away, transfer, or otherwise dispose of your Purchased NFT for any reason, the license granted in Section 4(vi) will immediately transfer to the new owner of the Purchased NFT and your own license will immediately expire with respect to that NFT without the requirement of notice, and you will have no further rights in or to the Art for that NFT. The restrictions in this Section 4 will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms.
(xi) Submitted Ideas. While the Company appreciates your interest, we expressly request that you do not submit any ideas, suggestions, concepts, techniques, procedures, methods, systems, designs, plans, charts, or similar materials (collectively “Submitted Ideas”). In the event that you nonetheless submit any Submitted Idea, you acknowledge and agree that the Company assumes no obligation of confidentiality or nondisclosure, express or implied by considering your Submitted Ideas. Without limitation, the Company shall be entitled to unrestricted use of any Submitted Ideas (in whole or in part and including, without limitation, any derivations thereof) for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise without any form of compensation.
(xiii) Additional Benefits and Secondary Buyers.
You may be able to sell, transfer, trade and transact your Purchased NFT on a third party marketplace. If you sell, transfer, or otherwise trade the Purchased NFT (i.e. the Purchased NFT and corresponding Additional Benefits), you also transfer your ability to access any unused Additional Benefits associated therewith; however, in no circumstances shall eligibility to participate in the Promotion (defined below) be transferrable to Secondary Buyers. You acknowledge and agree that Platform may implement a transaction fee on any secondary sale of the Purchased NFT, and such transaction fees may be incorporated into the smart contract for such Purchased NFT.
Any secondary buyer or transferee of the Purchased NFT (i.e. the Purchased NFT and corresponding benefits) (each, a “Secondary Buyer”) acknowledges and agrees such buyer or transferee is responsible for identifying any prizes that have already been redeemed by the previous holder of such Additional Benefits (i.e. the Purchased NFT and correspond benefits) or that otherwise may not be available to the Secondary Buyer, including eligibility to participate in the Promotion (defined below). It is the Secondary Buyer’s responsibility to validate the authenticity, functionality and remaining eligible Additional Benefits of any Additional Benefits acquired on the third party marketplace, and the Company has no responsibility or liability to any Secondary Buyer in any way arising therefrom.
As a holder of the Purchased NFT, Secondary Buyers must also provide the Company with certain information as the Compony may request from time to time, including to verify the Secondary Buyer’s identification, and as otherwise required by applicable law. Secondary Buyer must comply with and timely respond to such requests with accurate, current and complete information. Failure to comply with such requests or to satisfy our identification and registration procedures may result in the Secondary Buyer’s inability to use, access or participate in the use any Additional Benefit.
By purchasing a NFT, you have the opportunity to participate in the BUDVERSE X FIFA WORLD CUP~ 360 EXPERIENCE promotion (the “Promotion”) by checking the box at time purchase that confirms you wish to participate in the BUDVERSE X FIFA WORLD CUP~ 360 EXPERIENCE. Purchase of a NFT is not required in order to participate in the Promotion. In order to participate in the Promotion without purchase of a NFT see https://us.budweiser.com/360ExperiencePromo/Canada. Participation in the Promotion is subject to the Promotion Official Rules available at https://us.budweiser.com/360ExperiencePromo/Canada.

WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE PLATFORM TO YOU WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK
(i) Value and Volatility. The prices of NFTs can be extremely volatile and subjective, and NFTs have no inherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your NFT, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Each NFT has no inherent or intrinsic value. We cannot guarantee that any NFT purchased will retain its original value, as the value of NFTs is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of the Platform ecosystem may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT.
(ii) Tax Calculations. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your NFT-related transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Platform.
(iii) Use of Blockchain. The Platform does not store, send, or receive NFTs. This is because NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Platform’s supporting blockchain in the Network. Any transfer of NFTs occurs within the supporting blockchain in the Network, and not on the Platform.
(iv) Inherent Risks with Digital Assets. There are risks associated with using Internet-based digital assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrency, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your electronic wallet. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Network, however caused.
(v) Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Platform ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of your NFTs.
(vi) Software Risks. Upgrades to the Network, a hard fork in the Network, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Network may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the Network’s NFT standard, including the Platform ecosystem.
(vii) Securities Risks. The NFTs are not securities or financial instruments and are not offered for investment purposes.
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify the Company and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, advertisers, licensors, suppliers or partners from and against any claim, liability, loss, damage (actual and consequential) of any kind or nature, suit, judgment, litigation cost and attorneys' fees arising out of or in any way related to: (i) your breach of these Terms; (ii) your misuse of the Platform; or (iii) your violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations in connection with your access to or use of the Platform. You agree that we will have control of the defense or settlement of any such claims.
